"You've got Ubers and if you're paying for dinner or you're buying some drinks, it can add up.""Australian singles are making a questionable investment when it comes to finding love," a spokesperson from the dating site tells 9Honey.
"Despite dating more often, the guise of 'free' dating apps has confused shortsighted daters into wasting unnecessary time and money on unsuccessful dating experiences."In fact a survey of 1,046 Australians showed that while singles are more focused on finding a partner, with a third of respondents going on a date at least once a week, the financial output isn't matching the success rate."This weekly commitment is both a timely and costly endeavour however, with singles spending approximately 46 minutes getting ready to meet their prospective partner and a further 88 minutes once on the date, with wallets as open as their schedules, Aussies are spending an average of simply getting ready for a date and a subsequent on the date itself.
We know, most of the times it is the first step that takes the maximum efforts and we will make sure that this first step is the smoothest one you take!
Now Natalie is on the dating treadmill, like so many young Australians, using so-called free services to find love, spending at least a month's rent on dating-related expenses every year, going towards hair, makeup, new clothes, cabs and paying for her share of drinks and dinners."It's just usually a couple of drinks," she says of a typical first date resulting from dating apps and online dating.
"I tend to go round-for round, if we're only having a couple of drinks I'm more than happy to go halves or to offer to buy a drink.""I've had some dates where they've kind of insinuated at the end of the date that they'd be interested in meeting up again," she explains.

Additional research results show the more dates Aussie singles go on, the more they feel they're wasting money, with those opting to try and find love weekly feeling more frustrated than those who go on a date once a month."As a one-off spend it might seem manageable, but if you're going on at least one date a week, the time and money adds up really quickly, so it's important to make sure it's used wisely for dates with truly suitable partners.""I think if you don't get the opportunity to meet someone while you're out, it's a good opportunity to meet people," she says, adding that she likes getting to know the person via messaging ahead of the date.
